COIT20255 - ERP Systems Management

General Information

Unit Synopsis

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems have become part of many businesses since the early 1990s. These systems encapsulate and support core business processes and decision making. Many organisations have acquired ERP technology. However, there are considerable risks associated with ERP implementation, maintenance and on-going use. In this unit, you will be provided an overview of enterprise systems and equipped with knowledge required to make informed decisions relating to the selection, adoption and implementation of ERP systems. You will be provided with several examples and case studies to illustrate the benefits ERP systems offer.
